Teds get to I.T.

“I cannot find my work on my laptop and the internet has stopped working!” was the message I got from L one of the church wardens of a neighbouring parish. As I used to have a proper job in the I.T. Industry (and she knew it) I offered to pop around and see what was what.

Turns out the wireless driver had failed on the one laptop and so needed reinstalling and the lost file was not really lost if you looked at ‘recent items’ in file explorer, it was just saved in an obscure place.

While I was there I also solved a ‘logon service’ problem (just needed a restart to get the service going again) and downloaded an adware cleaner to speed up another laptop that was running slow.

We then had a chat about life the universe and training for the church and had a cup of coffee and a pray for a shoulder problem.

Then I said “Right time for a photo with the Teds as they are following me everywhere I go.” which was met with a scream as apparently you cannot have your photo taken unless you have washed your hair! Hence the boys got a photo with K, L’s dutiful daughter. Hmmmmmm.

Computer or laptop running slowly? Try this :

It’s good to talk. It is really really good to talk. And so a handful of us gather together every few months to do just that under the wise guidance and care of retired Canon John Parkin and his wife Angie (The freeloader in the picture is the Area Dean of Margam who said she would cry if not allowed in the photo).

In one sense there is change all the time in church and in other ways there is nothing new really. So it’s good to chew the fat, so to speak, with other colleagues and retired colleagues who have been through all phases of life before you. There is nothing that does not seem better after a cup of coffee and a chat and a pray.
